Mercedes-Benz has launched an updated version of the C-Class cabriolet in India at Rs 62.25 lakhs (all-India ex-showroom). It’s available in one top of the line C300 variant which sports the updated design that debuted in the standard C-Class just over a month ago.
The car is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine producing 258bhp/370Nm and is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission sending power to the rear wheels. This engine is BS6 compliant and gives the car a 0-100kmph time of 6.2 seconds.
This is in essence a top-of-the-line C-Class so it gets multi-beam LED head lamps, updated AIRCAP technology, optional ambient lighting, walnut wood trim and multiple colour options for the fabric roof, interiors and finally seven colour options for the exterior. One of the other major highlights of the car is 10.25-inch display for the touchscreen system with android Auto/Apple CarPlay.
Commenting on the launch of the C-Class cabriolet, Michael Jopp, vice president, sales and marketing Mercedes-Benz India said, “Following the successful launch of the new C-Class, we are glad to introduce the stylish and suave new C-Class Cabriolet, which further extends the C-Class range with open top motoring.
